Thanksgiving: A Good Time to Build Our “Gratitude Muscle”

Every year around this time, for most of us, ¬†our thoughts turn to what we’re thankful for. And also…WHO we’re thankful for. Rightfully so, because that’s the big reason behind the Thanksgiving holiday.

But how often do we ponder what we’re thankful for within ourselves? Let’s give it a shot…shall we?

  • What is unique about YOU that you are thankful for?
  • Name something that you’re “good at” and you are thankful for the capability.
  • What character trait do you have that you are grateful for?

If you are stumped by any of these questions, ask people around you, what they think. Take some time to consider what you’re thankful for within yourself. This is NOT a selfish use of time. It’s valuable time spent building your “Gratitude Muscle.” This is just the warm up. Consider it “stretching,” if you like. We’ll move on to building our “Gratitude Muscle” with others, in the next post.

Until then, tell me what some of your thoughts are in the comment section, below.

      Thank you, Dr. Monique. Feel free to share with your Gratitude Group. Let’s see if we can get some “internal” gratitude going (along with the external gratitude). I also invite you to share the link to your group here (if it’s something that is open to others joining). Increasing gratitude is always a good thing!
